Applicants needed for Judy Ivan Healthy Communities Endowment

SALINE, Mich. – St. Joseph Mercy Saline is calling for applicants for the
Judy Ivan Healthy Communities Endowment. Applications are due Wednesday,
March 22, 2013.

The Endowment’s philosophy is to “assist community groups within the St. Joseph Mercy Saline service area with financial resources for projects or initiatives that will make a positive difference in the health status of the community.”

Generally, the Endowment makes grants to local community groups and schools in Clinton, Dundee, Lincoln, Manchester, Milan and Saline communities.

Steve Henrie, regional director of development for Saint Joseph Mercy Health System, says, “We encourage people in charge of community programs to take this opportunity to apply for funding through the Endowment. We are happy to be able to join with non-profit organizations and schools to improve the health of our communities.”

The Endowment supports innovative projects that address community needs. Eligible projects that fall within these categories include: health and welfare, education and prevention programs. Funds may be requested for health education materials, supplies, equipment, speakers, project staff, health events and other expenses to provide interventions and education.

Projects or interventions sponsored by local community health coalitions or school-based health initiatives that are undertaken in partnership with each other and/or other groups within the community are encouraged and will be given priority status for available funds.
Finally, all projects must be consistent with the Saint Joseph Mercy Health System mission statement and values: We serve together in Trinity Health, in the spirit of the Gospel, to heal body, mind and spirit, improve the health of our communities and to steward the resources entrusted to us.
